The Secret Diary of Lydia Bennet: A Mini ARC Review

The Secret Diary of Lydia Bennet: A Mini ARC Review

When I first heard of this book, I wasn’t so sure. The cover definitely isn’t the best thing, and it sounds like a copycat of The Secret Diary of Lydia Bennet from the Youtube Lizzie Bennet Diaries series. But it’s really not. And I’m glad that I read it. It was a pleasant surprise that I really enjoyed. BTW: I’ve seen a better alternate cover and a different title: The Wild Girl of Pride and Prejudice. So I’m not sure which one came first. But here’s the other cover that’s on Goodreads: Definitely that’s better than the one on my copy though. […]

Bah Bah Black Sheep: The Star-Touched Queen

Bah Bah Black Sheep: The Star-Touched Queen

I am always a fan of reading about unique cultures and mythologies. Especially when they’re interwoven with a great story and great writing. The Star-Touched Queen by Roshani Chokski promised all of that. And it received major hype from practically all the bloggers and reviewers out there. People were raving. So I was expecting to love it, and I was ecstatic to see that I got accepted for a review copy. However, this book didn’t work for me. But I’m a fair person; I try to be a good reviewer. So I’m going to attempt to explain my dislike of it. But before I delve into the […]

In Real Life: An ARC Review

In Real Life: An ARC Review

Upon finishing In Real Life by Jessica Love, my first thought is: this book is cute. It’s that cute, feel-good type novel that permeates YA contemporary romances. “Cute” just seems to sum it up nicely in four letters. Personally, I didn’t connect with the main character Hannah a ton because she just seemed a lot younger than I and I think she was a little immature. Like the point of the novel is that she goes to meet Nick, a guy that she’s been talking to over the internet and phone for years. (Pssst, don’t worry. They met through Hannah’s sister and not creepily over the […]

That Time When I Fell in Love With Emery Lord’s “The Start of Me and You”: A Book Review

That Time When I Fell in Love With Emery Lord’s “The Start of Me and You”: A Book Review

Guys. So this book was wonderful and magical and I don’t think I’ve related to a main character on a such a deep level for a long time…if at all. So let’s just talk about it. Reasons Paige and I are actually the same exact person She lives in Indiana and I was born in Indiana and went to high school in Indiana. HOOSIERS, BABY. She’s a grammar nerd and I’m an Editing minor. GRAMMAR IS A HUGE PART OF MY LIFE. She’s super awkward and overthinks around boys, aka me. Case in point: “‘Hey.’ My voice sounded breathy, like I […]

Cress: A Re-read Review

Cress: A Re-read Review

Re-read reviews are always really hard for me because I don’t know what to say. So, I’m just going to list the three main reasons why I love Cress so much and why it was my favorite Lunar Chronicles book (before I read Winter): The addition of the Rapunzel story.  Rapunzel has always been a favorite of mine. Tangled will forever be one of my favorite movies because she’s just wonderful. Literally, in my sophomore Speech Class in high school, we had to do a “campaign” speech, and I ran to be the next Rapunzel. No joke. So I love that Meyer added Rapunzel into […]

Scarlet | A Re-Read Review

Scarlet | A Re-Read Review

Scarlet, Scarlet, Scarlet. I’m here to talk about Scarlet. Okay, I’m going to be frank here–I’m awful at re-read reviews. You know, when you read a book for the first time, everything is new to you so you have a lot of things to talk about. Everything is a new experience and, thus, the things that you liked stick out to you and the things that you didn’t like stick out to you. Because they’re fresh. But on a re-read, I’ve already been introduced to the characters, to the plot, to the twists. Nothing is new. So I have a hard […]
